WITHDRAWAL SYMPTOMS OF NICOTINE

WITHDRAWAL SYMPTOMS OF NICOTINE

BY MICHAEL FALADE The addictive substance in tobacco is NICOTINE. It is the energy supplement for smoke addicts. It releases extra chemicals in the brain, thereby increasing the brain’s cognitive power, making it function above its normal level. Any attempt to withdraw from continuously feeding the brain with nicotine leads to withdrawal symptoms. Some of the effects nicotine has on the brain are: boosting mood, reducing irritability and depression, and increasing the brain’s ability to memorize. The brain gets accustomed…

YOUR BODY VS. SMOKING

YOUR BODY VS. SMOKING

BY MICHAEL FALADE Compared to other creatures, the human body is very fragile. It can hardly survive ‘harshness’ when compared to creatures in the thick forest. Hence, the safety of the body must be of concern to everyone when subjecting it to unhealthy habits and addictions like SMOKING. It’s important to know what smoking does to the body before you decide whether or not to engage in the act. There are no safe substances in any tobacco, from nitrogen oxides,…

UNDERSTANDING ADDICTION

UNDERSTANDING ADDICTION

By Michael Falade Addiction is the state of absolute dependency on a particular substance or thing. It is the condition of being obsessed with or enslaved by a habit. It is a compulsion, an engrossment, an overwhelming engagement in a practice despite the harmful consequences. Once a conscious decision, substance dependence often leaves its victim with no say or option after a while, due to its side effect on the brain. With time, it becomes a compulsive action and eventually…

THE NIGERIAN FACTOR

THE NIGERIAN FACTOR

This common axiom “The Nigerian Factor” is usually on individuals’ lips, especially residents in Nigeria. It’s high time we derived, if not already, and realized the real meaning. Personally, I have witnessed so many situations where this statement has been given different contextual meanings, but they almost point to ‘one’ thing. In most Nigerian organizations, ‘the Nigerian Factor’ overrules every other laid down principle, unknowingly. With this not being the real intent and vision of the founding fathers, even the…

Electricity: A Commodity Needed for National Development

Electricity: A Commodity Needed for National Development

It is to the joy of a consumer to gain satisfaction in the purchase of a commodity. Electricity is a commodity in high demand in our modern society. Almost every gadget is being designed to be power driven. The energy conversion in question is from electrical energy generated to either mechanical or heat energy needed for operation. Electricity makes life easier for mankind. The reason why most industries go into extinction is due to the overburden cost of power in…

THE GIRL CHILD

THE GIRL CHILD

The girl-child is a beautiful, creative, intelligent, talented human being. Many great people in the world today are girls that grew up into exceptional women. But some people disregard girls and think they are just weak people; that they are just there to be married, have children and stay in the kitchen their whole life. How boring! That is not how a girl-child’s life should be viewed! She should be going to important places; she should become an important person….

DAY SCHOOL – AN IMPEDIMENT TO FORMATION AND CO-OPERATION OF VIBRANT ALUMNI BODIES?

DAY SCHOOL – AN IMPEDIMENT TO FORMATION AND CO-OPERATION OF VIBRANT ALUMNI BODIES?

If you’re a Nigerian, especially born and bred here, this is our lifestyle. Secondary school education in Nigeria, apart from being among the foundation given to any child, is also the preparatory stage which equips the child for admittance into the tertiary institution for more knowledge in a particular chosen field. Admitted, a house that is built on a weak foundation is bound to collapse. Managements and boards of both private and public secondary schools in Nigeria put into consideration…

THE CERTIFICATE OR DIVERSIFICATION?

THE CERTIFICATE OR DIVERSIFICATION?

The rigorous disheartening and discouraging forever-taking processes involved in securing admission into a Nigerian university is no longer news. A young naive high school leaver re-affirms the hostility in our system when faced with the choice of either taking a “try-your-luck” exam tagged JAMB examination or staying at home for only God knows how long. It’s usually the survival of the luckiest, not fittest or brainiest. By the time one is frustrated after taking JAMB examination for 3-5 times (even…
